In Iowa, official registration of births, deaths, and marriages began July 1, 1880.

All original records that have been registered are on file with the Iowa Department of Public Health, Bureau of Vital Records. Statewide record searches are available from the state registrar.

Local registrars are located in the Fremont County Recorder office and maintain records of birth, death and marriages that have occurred in Fremont County. County registrars, however, do not have code authority to have on record: single-parent births prior to July 1, 1995; adoptions; any record ordered seal by a court of law; or birth, death, and marriages between the years 1921 to 1941.

County Recorder's office has birth and death records from 1880, except 1935-1941, limited marriage records from 1848, divorce and land records.
